Our Story – Northbound Notebooks

Our Story

Simple beginnings

Our story starts with Adam. That's me up there on the right. I write most of the content on this site. Hello.

I've been a scribbler ever since I could hold a pencil. I spend a lot of time writing. I always will. I know there's something special about putting pen to paper.

It's where your ideas grow.

I was tired of burning through expensive notebooks and their thin paper. So I turned to other options. I looked online. I searched far and wide. Dozens later, I was left frustrated. I couldn't find a solid refillable notebook with great paper. It was even harder to find something big enough for practical use.

Big ideas don't fit on tiny pages.

That's around where I met up with an old friend. That's Mark. Turns out he had some great ideas about design, leather, and how we could make the coolest notebooks possible.

So we put our heads together. In a few quick months we built something really special. And we're here to share that with you.

 

Made in Canada

We're based in the Hintonburg community in Ottawa, Ontario. We're proudly Canadian owned and operated. We emphasize using local supplies and resources. Our leather is purchased locally and cut by hand. We're currently looking for a permanent workshop to call home.

The next year is going to be a busy one. We're looking to get involved with more shows, events, and festivals. We hope to see you soon.
